Hi @Sue114


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the Printhead error.


Please try these steps - HP Printers - Error Indicates Faulty Printhead


If the issue still persists, I'd suggest you Contact HP in your region regarding the service options for your printer as the Printhead is not a customer replaceable part.


If you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty. If yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from. Check next to your profile Name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.   


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
